Your name? Crystal
Babies name? Kira
How old is your LO now? 6 weeks
How are you adjusting to motherhood or being the mother of multiple children?
Doing better then I thought I would...with having a 13 year old and now a baby is quite the jump, but Caitlin is seeming to do well with it which has taken a load off of my mind. Also what helped is I have finally learnt to put out of my mind all the comments that are like: "Well your older now.. dot dot dot.. or "Have you thought of how much older you are going to be when this one is an adult? Is that really fair to her???" Mind you, I am just 34..and didn't even consider myself all that old till all these comments, which some of those have come from my very own Mom.. thanks Mom.. bleh
Does your baby sleep through the night yet? How often does he/she wake up?
Sorta? For a newborn, she can...meaning, she can sleep up to 5-6 hours sometimes which is about as long as I could expect to hope for, now if could just get her to do that every night and to do that 'when' I want her too.. she has sometimes, which would be like from 1 am - 7am.. just doesnt always happen, only maybe happens half the time if really lucky.. but roughly normally..she falls asleep sometime at night, that part varies so i wont try to type that out, but get her to fall asleep again around 10-11 pm at night..she then wakes wanting food around 1 ish.. -the times im lucky she sleeps till 6 or 7 or so, the other half of the time she wakes again around 4 or 5...up an hour or two, then up again at 8 or 9... BUT if she did the wake at 6 or 7, she then (if i can get her to go back to sleep) will sleep a few more hours.. its sorta hard to type out a schedule to be honest though
What is the most exciting thing your LO has done so far?
Her smile..to me..seeing the few times she gives you that truly huge beautiful grin just touches my very heart and soul.. she is learning to do more each day and to try to 'talk' to me more...but she hasnt done enough of that to count yet..so the next exciting thing would be to hear her trying to talk more
